It should be against the law to allow a casino take in so many old people and they never win. The slots are so tight you could just throw your money out the window on the way to the casino and have the same percent...More

The casino hosted a family event for the holidays. Nice to have this type of indoor event to take the kids to in the winter.

Stopped in for a night of fun. Was easy to spend enough to get 2 free dinners (promotion item for new rewards sign up). People were friendly! Food was great and the casino was clean and up to date! Would go back soon!

Enjoyed a quick stop while in Dubuque recently. They have a very friendly staff, a decent amount of slot machines and plenty of table games. Great location too! Worth the stop.

I am not a Diamond Club member, so am not sure what benefits you receive with that membership. I would suggest contacting member services @ the casino.

Sisters Weekend near Diamond Jo Casino 4/3-4/4 (1 Replies)
My sisters and I are spending the weekend in Dubuque. The Doobie Bros are sold out. Is there any other venues going on in town? I.E. comedy clubs, plays, etc.? Are there alot of storefronts on the Riverwalk? Any suggestions on nightlife? There are 8 of us age 40-55.

I am not aware of any other music venues going on. There is comedy night on Wednesday at a few places in town. You are also only 15 minutes from Galena Ill and they have a beautiful down town with lots of shops. If you like to gamble you have two options. Have a great trip.
